of the Important Scriptures that Guide My Life
The Scriptures including
Paul’s writings are Inspired
Timothy 3:16 All
Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
Peter 3:15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is
salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom
given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking
in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand,
which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as
they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
Scriptures Contain Good News as Well as Bad News
3:16 For God so loved
the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in
Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Corinthians 15:3 For I
delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ
died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried,
and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
3:36 He who believes in
the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall
not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
Corinthians 4:3 But even
if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose
minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the
light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God,
should shine on them.
Scriptures produce Faith, Assurance and New Life
10:17 So then faith
comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
John 5:13 These things I
have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you
may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to
believe in the name of the Son of God.
Peter 1:23 Having been
born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word
of God which lives and abides forever.
that Should Guide that New Life
6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about
tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for
the day is its own trouble.
Thessalonians 5:14 Now
we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the
fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one
renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for
yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in
everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for
you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all
things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
4:32 And be kind to one
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ
Peter 5:7 Casting all
your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
13:5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such
things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you
nor forsake you.”
6:9 And let us not grow
weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not
28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy
Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded
you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and
receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
